has been termed a critic's band, an art band and an avante-garde band. Avante-garde? They're about as avante-garde as a strawberry milkshake. Surely there is something unusual going on in their music. Each of the band members takes the role of storyteller in their songs, with instrumentation that is sometimes sparse and sometimes conversational. But its nothing strange at all - it just doesn't always follow the rules.
Each of Glass Eye's recordings to date have reflected their belief in originality and purpose. The development of the Glass Eye perspective as a style has been fostered by the band's passion to be unique and the desire to communicate with their audience. Their one-of-a-kind nature is a surface beneath which lies a deep, rich body of work.
Bar/None Records and Glass Eye are very proud to present their latest recording "Hello Young Lovers" . It is a collection of songs which have an emotional immediacy and intriguing depth that bring the term "classic rock" into the present tense.
"Hello Young Lovers" was produced by Glass Eye's bassist Brian Beattie (producer of recent hits by The Dead Milkmen) and marks the return to the band's original line-up with keyboardist/accordian player Stella Weir and drummer Scott Marcus rejoining Beattie and founding guitarist Kathy McCarty.
